    A very informative episode. The enhancements to the Battery Settings are a great find.

    I have one correction, to share: The way to summon Control Center on non-FaceID iPhones is still to swipe up from the bottom (not down from the upper-right corner, as described in the episode). I have confirmed this on the iPhone 6, 7, and 8. It drives me a little nuts when I switch between an iPad or my personal iPhone Xs and my employer-owned iPhone 8 — it trips me up every time.

    Excellent Chit-Chat notwithstanding.

    Thanks Steve for the nice comments! You are right I should have mentioned that for those who are still on iPhones 5s,6,7,8 that yes the control center swipes from the bottom. It throws me off when I grab my wife’s 8 Plus. 🙂 I am so glad you enjoyed the episode!
